Are you like your mother?
Going to visit my mother, whom I adore, for a week. We are so different and yet there is a small part of me that aspires to be like her. She has lots of STUFF. STUFF she is very attached to, STUFF of a lifetime. And she manages, cares and displays it beautifully. It makes my style look minimal and my house devoid of any personality in comparision. Interestly both my brother and I maintain homes that while not spare do not contain the many layers of items our mom's house has. Days 1 thru 4 I will marvel at how her STUFF looks so cohesive, attractive and brimming with warmth and personality. Days 4 thru 6 I will itch to get rid of things. Will grit my teeth at all the items to manage. It is not my house...I won't interfere. Just wondering if others have similar experiences.
